    Crestor/Zetia results

    Just tested myself using the CardioChek system. I last used it several weeks ago, so the results are comparative. Also, the results on this unit compare very well with my blood tests. Just for a reference point, my ORIGINAL (baseline) #s taken 7 months ago were as follows:
    TOTAL: 250...HDL: 61 ..TRIGS: 180..LDL: 153.. After being on Crestor 8mg ave (5mg 3Xweek/10mg 4Xweek) for the last 4 months, my # were as follows: TOTAL: 170...HDL: 63...TRIGS: 75...LDL: 92..

    Two weeks ago I upped my Crestor dose (by 2 mg)to 10mg daily and added 1/2 dose(5mg) Zetia. The results are as follows: TOTAL: 143..HDL 74...TRIGS: 75..LDL 54. Pretty amazing . The additional 2mg Crestor probably contributed some, but based on the studies I've seen comparing 5mg Crestor to 10mg..where the difference was only 7% in LDL lowering...the addition of 2mg daily would contribute less than 5% of the LDL lowering (from original baseline)..maybe 8mg of the 38 total drop?. That would still attribute a significant amount to the Zetia (30 pt ADDITIONAL drop from 92). I know my HDL went up significantly as well...contributing to the drop in LDL.

    I think you will be amazed what 40 mg Lipitor plus Zetia will do for you. If you're not satisfied with that try 20 mg Crestor and Zetia

    Stick with 10 mg of Crestor and Zetia 10 mg. You are at goal and you should be happy. Your levels will probably drop further as you continue to take it.
    The best measurement is to have a qualified lab run the test, i.e., Stanford Heart Lab.
